Third Birthday Giveaway #4

Today is my turn for a birthday giveaway.  What better way to celebrate than with fiber!

Since I received my new drum carder, I’ve been making good use of it for my projects, but it also gave me the opportunity to offer batts for the giveaway.

The “Ocean” batt is one ounce and contains hand dyed teal/turquoise Domestic 56, Romney and alpaca/silk; three shades of merino, angelina and mulberry silk.

The “Purple People Eater” has hand dyed Cheviot in purple, purple haze, and gray along with five shades of purple merino and a purple/red merino silk mix.  It is 1.3 ounces.
